Imo LGA Polls: Tension Grip Council Chairmen, ISIEC Set To Release Guidelines

IMO-There is tension among Chairmen of Interim Management Committees of the 27 Local Governments in Imo State.

This is so because their days in the Council will soon be over as the State Independent Electoral Commission, ISIEC, is expected to release the time table and guidelines for polls, next month. Anaedoonline gathered that the Council Chairmen are also demanding for time to enable them to complete some of the projects, policies, and programmes they kick-started.

A source who is in the know of the moves of the Interim Chairmen said “They have tasted the sweet honey and are finding it difficult to leave.

“They want an extension on the grounds that six months is not enough time
for any public office holder elected or appointed to do anything in office”


Anaedoonline, however, gathered that with the pace and determination ISIEC has shown towards holding the polls in December, it may be difficult to postpone the election.

The Commission had commenced the review of delineation of every local government into electoral wards in July which signposts its readiness for the elections.
